shims under the pivot block is for you to adjust to reduce you tire overheated in 5min it depends on track condition. if not mistake it call roll center the more you put the more traction you gain it work on low traction track, and the less you put the less traction you will have it work on high traction track

No one has asked, but what tires/inserts are you running? If you have the wrong tires, it won't matter how you setup your car. I think that if the car is handling so horribly that it must be a tire choice error, unless you are a horrible, horrible driver

Ditto - I run 2 hole pistons too...

But i run 2.5mm under the pivot blocks front and rear. In the stock settings, the car rolls too much on a high speed track causing understeer.
The purpose of raising the blocks is to reduce the tendency for the car to roll.

This effectively presses the outside tires harder into the ground resulting in more grip. The tires are being used on their whole contact patch, rather than rolling onto their outside edges when the car starts to roll during cornering.

Antisquat refers to placing the spacers under the blocks, but only on the front blocks (on the rear of the car). I've not run my car with antisquat so i won't comment.

My setup is similar enough to Marcos. that i'd recommend giving it a go.
If you find the rear of the car stepping out then try running a little less droop than the front.

Does anybody here have pics of the Cyclone equiped with the Pro4's steering column? Some owners have converted their Cyclone's steering using the one of the Pro4. Because it's much sturdy.

Marcos J. - I see that you run with only 2mm of ackerman spacing. I believe this is supposed to make the car steer more aggressively and turn-in harder, is this what you have found? (going from 4mm to 2mm).

Thanks in advance.

Use Ackerman to keep a consistent steering arc between on and off power. So if your car steers well on power but pushes off power then use less Ackerman. As a rule off thumb, the more grip you have the less Ackerman you can use.
